NURE Aerial Gamma-Ray and Magnetic Reconnaissance Survey of Portions of New Mexico, Arizona and Texas, Final Report: Volume 2-E, Holbrook Quadrangle

Description: The results of a high-sensitivity, aerial gamma-ray spectrometer and magnetometer survey of the Holbrook two degree quadrangle, Arizona are presented. Instrumentation and methods are described in Volume 1 of this final report. The work was done by Carson Helicopters, Inc., and Carson Helicopters was assisted in the interpretation by International Exploration, Inc. The work was performed for the US Department of Energy - National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program. Analysis of this radiometric data yielded 260 statistically significant eU anomalies. Of this number, forty-four were considered to be of sufficient strength to warrant further investigation. These preferred anomalies are separated into groups having some geologic aspect in common.

Precambrian uranium-bearing quartz-pebble conglomerates: exploration model and United States resource potential

Description: From Introduction: "Uranium has been discovered in fluvial quartz-pebble conglomerates in most of the Precambrian shield areas of the world, including the Canadian, African, South America, Indian, Baltic, and Australian shields. Occurrences in these and other areas are shown in Figure 1.1. Two of these occurrences, the Huronian supergroup of Canada and the Witwatersrand deposit of South Africa contain 20-30 percent of the planet's known uranium reserves (Nininger, 1974). Thus it is critical that we understand the origin of these deposits and develop exploration models that can aid in finding new deposits."

NURE Aerial Gamma-Ray and Magnetic Reconnaissance Survey, Colorado [i.e. California]-Arizona Area, Salton Sea NI 11-9, Phoenix NI 12- 7, El Centro NI 11-12, Ajo NI 12-10, Lukeville NH 12-1 Quadrangles: Volume 1 - Narrative Report

Description: From abstract" As part of the Department of Energy (DoE) National Uranium Resource Evaluation Program, LKB Resources, Inc. has performed a rotary-wing reconnaissance high sensitivity radiometric and magnetic survey, encompassing several 1:250,000 quadrangles in southwestern Arizona and southeastern California. The surveyed area consisted of approximately 9300 line miles. The radiometric data was corrected and normalized to 400 feet terrain clearance. The data was identified as to rock type by correlating the data samples with existing geologic maps. Statistics defining the mean and standard deviation of each rock type are presented as listings in Volume I of this report. The departure of the data from its corresponding mean rock type is computed in terms of standard deviation units and is presented graphically as anomally maps in' Volume II and as computer listings in microfiche form in Volume I.

Aerial Radiometric and Magnetic Survey of the Amarillo National Topographic Map, NI 14-1, Texas

Description: From introduction: Geodata International, Incorporated, conducted an airborne gamma ray and total magnetic field survey which covered a region of North Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. The specific area of this report as outlined on Figure 1 was surveyed from an aircraft using large-volume radiation detectors with computer controlled airborne equipment. Each map line was flown in an east-west direction with an average length of 120 miles and each tie line was flown in a north-south direction with an average length of 69 miles. Map lines and tie lines were surveyed spaced at intervals indicated on Figure 2. The data for the total area of Figure 1 were gathered between March-July, 1976.

A Modeling Study of Gaseous Rn-222, Xe-133, and He-4 for Uranium Exploration

Description: From introduction: The emanation method of uranium exploration consists of measuring the abundance of one or more uranium decay products at some distance from the orebody itself. The halo of decay products expands the exploration target and improves the chances of detection. This method assumes that indicator nuclides migrate away from the ore by some physio-chemical mechanism such as diffusion or solution in groundwater. The indicators must remain at detectable concentrations and be distinguishable from background levels. This study is concerned with gas-phase transport of Rn-222, Xe-133, and He-4 away from uranium ore deposits. The first of these indicator nuclides, Rn-222, is a member of the uranium series decay chain (Table 1) and has a 3.82 day half-life. The second, Xe-133,. is a spontaneous fission product which has a half-life of 5.26 days. Finally, He-4 is a stable nuclide created from alpha particles emitted by various members of the uranium, actinium, and thorium decay series.
